Chile Verde Pork Enchiladas

Usually when I make chile verde (green chile sauce) I make enough for an army and there are leftovers for days. I can't and won't let it go to waste, so I make a big serving of chile verde enchiladas and repurpose my pork chile verde. My family is happy with a new meal set on their plates, and I don't have to hear the nagging question, "This again?"

Ingredients

  • 4 huerito chili peppers
  • 4 serrano chili peppers
  • 4 jalapeños
  • 6 tomatillos
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • A pinch of oregano
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon
  • 1 cup of boiled chile water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, extra for frying tortillas

  • Black olives, sliced
  • Cotija cheese, to taste

    Arrange fried tortillas along bottom of a baking dish, and fill the center of each one with a heaping tablespoon of pork chile verde. Add a pinch of Monterey Jack cheese and roll each tortilla into a tube. Continue until the entire baking dish is full, lining up and arranging the stuffed tortillas as you go.
